Beaufort, André NV (2021) Champagne Polisy Brut Réserve (D 1/24)

The André Beaufort NV (2021) Champagne Polisy Brut Réserve is 80% Pinot Noir from the 2021 vintage and 20% Chardonnay from 2018 - "it's showing well now" says Réol Beaufort "as the Chardonnay rounds out the young Pinot Noir." Organic farming since 1971 - one of the first in Champagne along with Georges Laval - wild yeast fermentations, minimal SO2. Disgorged in January of 2024. This is an outstanding value Champagne with loads of character - subtly toasty but with strong minerality and vibrant energy, not heavy but still textured with great acidity.

Laval, Georges 2018 Champagne Cumières 1er Cru Bl de Noirs 'Les Hautes Chevres'

ORIGINAL PRICE - $300 -  Vincent Laval's Les Hauts Chèvres Blanc de Noirs bottling comes from a parcel on the western portion of the slope of Cumières. Formerly comprised of Pinot Noir from very old vines (which have since been replanted), the wine is now made from venerable Pinot Meunier vines planted between 1931 and 1947 in the same lieu-dit. One could call this a "serious" Pinot Meunier, without the sometimes unbridled character the variety sometimes displays, due to the old vines and longtime organic farming of the dedicated Laval family, but that would understate the sheer deliciousness of the wine, which should only grow as the structural and fruit elements knit. -JCM

Laval, Georges 2019 Champagne Cumières Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs "Les Chênes"

ORIGINAL PRICE - $300 -  If ever there were an argument that portions of Cumières merit Grand Cru status, Laval's Les Chênes makes a convincing case. The amphitheater-shaped vineyard is something of a sun trap and produces Champagnes of power and precision in Vincent's able hands. Made up of 100% organically-farmed Chardonnay from the eponymous lieu-dit on the eastern side of the village (near the bottom of the slope down by the river), where the soils are chalky rather than the clays of other portions of the village. This is a particularly powerful blanc de blancs. Don't hesitate to age for 10 or more years, as tastings with Vincent have shown that Les Chênes is a particularly long-lived wine and a magnificent expression of singular terroir.  -JCM

Laherte Frères NV Champagne Chavot Extra Brut Rosé de Meunier

Aurélien Laherte decided to retool his previous Brut Rosé Ultradition Champagne and focus on one exclusively made from Pinot Meunier. This Champagne combines 60% immediately pressed Meunier blended with 30% macerated Meunier and 10% still red Meunier (most rosé Champagnes only opt for one of these methods of production).  This wine has a deep salmon robe with delicate flavors of wild cherry, salty plum, dried tarragon, and a sharp streak of chalky minerality. A Champagne with both finesse and structure, you can serve this as an aperitif or pair this with lighter meats or a rare filet mignon!

Cuillier, Vincent 2019 Champagne Brut Nature L'Arbre - Blanc de Noirs (Pino

Wine geeks rejoice...we have another 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne on the shelf! This wine comes from Vincent Cuillier's family vineyard, which is noteworthy because he began his dedicated work of "vitiforestry" and regenerative agriculture in this parcel, hence the name "L'Arbre" for the many trees he planted amongst the vines. Harvest is by hand and fermentation is with native yeast in tank, with aging for a year in tank before 3 years of aging sur lattes in bottle. Though relatively chiseled on opening, a bit of air gives way to the subtle creamy mushroom notes. A great introduction to the compelling Champagnes from young newcomer Vincent Cuillier. -EL

The base wine is from 2019, blended with older wines, aged 3 years sur latte.

On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and complex, with lovely depth at the core, elegant mousse, superb Verzenay mineral drive and a long, snappy finish." - The View from the Cellar

Huré Frères NV Champagne Brut Reserve L'Invitation

20% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 40% Meunier. The nose offers aromas of baked apple, brioche, wild strawberry, orange oil, white flowers, and ginger. On the broad, medium-bodied palate there is a fine tension between the ripe red fruit, citrus peel, frisky acidity, and a fairly serious core of stony minerality. This develops nicely in the glass displaying a frothy mousse and coltish, energetic fruit initially, with the earthy Montagne de Reims character emerging with air. This is a fine Champagne to accompany charcuterie, sushi, or smoked fish.

Emmanuel Leroy and Bénédicte Ruppert are guiding a second generation, field of dreams estate in the southern Champagne village of Essoyes, seven kilometers from the Burgundian border.

Cuillier, Vincent 2018 Champagne Brut Nature Chemin des Rois 1.5L

ORIGINAL PRICE - $190 -  The Champagnes from Vincent Cuillier first arrived to the New York market about 2 years ago, and were quickly embraced by our staff. The 2019 Chemin des Rois in 750ml that we stocked in 2022 was a beautiful wine, laser-like on opening, and revealing layers of subtle richness in the mid-palate after some aeration. When we saw the 2018 was available in magnum we quickly jumped at the opportunity...to offer it to our customers? Well yes that too, but we do have to open something on New Years Eve! 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, from a parcel in the Marne, fermented in barrel and aged for a year in barrel with an additional 2+ years sur lattes. You don't have to tell anyone it's a zero/zero (zero filtration and zero added sulfites) wine, just open it and watch the heads turn! Don't be afraid to give it about a half hour to open up.
